A patient was successfully treated with hyperbaric oxygen for chronic osteomyelitis of the mandible associated with osteopetrosis. This mode of therapy appears to have a definite place in the management of such patients. There was no clinical, radiographic, or laboratory evidence that the osteopetrosis was made worse by the hyperbaric oxygen.
